The things they carried by Tim O’Brien

amy-the-things-they-carriedThe Things They Carried isn’t how I thought it would be. I liked it; it wasn’t trite or sentimental it also wasn’t linear or solid, and while it may not all be exactly true, there does seem to be much truth in it. It is a man’s stories of his time in Vietnam, what it meant to him then and the ongoing impact through his life. It isn’t something that ever really makes sense, but stories help.
